PVR/DVD Recorder for Sky Digibox?


Standard Member
Hi, My VCR has finally died and I would like to replace it with a HDD PVR/DVD recorder. I would like to connect & record from a Sky digibox (non-subscription) and would like to use the excellent functions of Pause, chase TV & EPG advanced recording, instead of the usual record the channel which is on at the time, as a VCR would do.

Can anyone suggest a sub £200 PVR/DVD Recorder (twin tuner, if in price range) which will give me all the PVR functionality with my Sky free-sat set up?

I have spent quite a lot of time reading this and other forums and have picked up a number of threads which have moved my knowledge on (eg Guide+ and IR links to set top boxes may be needed) but have not been able to put everything together to confirm that I can do exactly what I want and if so with which Recorder.

I cannot go for a PVR with freeview and do not want to subscribe to SKY+. Also not to keen to go the Tivo route

Any advice in this matter would be much appreciated. Many thanks
